This is one of a series of interviews completed by the Milton Historical Society (http://miltonhistoricalsociety.ca) as part of the production of the book "Milton Remembers WWII 1939-1945". Several veterans of Milton and the surrounding community were interviewed by MHS staff to document their experiences in Milton, their service to Canada in WWII and the impact that this had on their life. This is the interview of Lt. Lorne Havard, a long time Canadian Militia member, first sent to the west coast when the War with Japan started in the Armoured Corps. Shortly thereafter he was sent to Europe where he commanded an Armoured Reconnaissance Unit. Wounded by a mine explosion he was sent to hospital in England where he met his future wife Barbara. The story of Barbara Havard is also in this digital collection. This interview was conducted by Ken Lamb on April 5, 1994.
